Which Tennis Player are You?

Hi tennis players and fans! Aren’t you just curious of which tennis player are you on the court? Well, quizzes are all over in Facebook nowadays; from personality tests to determine the color of your aura or even which character fits you in a TV series. Some may find them silly, and others just take it as truth to their characters. So for the sake of fun let me give you one of those quizzes. If you’re a tennis fan or a player, you can relate to this enjoyable quiz. If not you can still take this so you’ll know and if ever you don’t know much about the player, there’s always Google. 🙂

nadal, tennis, quiz

This quiz is simple. You may opt to answer it by creating an account or you can just proceed without it. There are only eight questions and this won’t take much of your time although I know if you’re a tennis fan you wouldn’t mind how long it takes. Just answer the questions honestly and you’ll know the result in no time.

Have fun!

I’m Hooked

I’m hooked with Asian dramas, particularly the Korean ones. Actually I’ve been watching Korean series, mostly romantic comedies since the early 2000’s and then I stopped. What made me watch them again? Blame it on a Facebook friend who liked a page of a drama which just had its premier. I got curious so I went to the page and saw that it looked interesting so I watched it and my “addiction” began. 😛

From then on I searched and watched other series that would fit my taste while waiting for the next episode of the drama. By the way, the drama’s called My Love from the Star. It’s a love story about an alien, who landed during the Joseon era and lived on earth for 400 years, and a top actress who fell in love with each other. It really got popular around Asia and I guess in some parts of the world. I see some comments coming from different continents so I guess it really made big. There are really a lot of sites that have compilations of Asian dramas that one could easily get hooked. I couldn’t anymore count how many drama series I’ve watched. I even got to watch and love those handsome actors! Haha! The highschool in me!!! Just imagine how many hours I had wasted idling around and doing nothing. As a result of just sitting around, I have gained weight. Waaaah!!! I guess it’s a goodbye for me to wear a decent, stylish swimwear this summer season. Tsk tsk..

There were even times I stayed up sooo.. late I couldn’t stop watching ‘coz every episode was a cliffhanger! I also watch behind the scenes in Youtube, and read articles about the actors and the series. Addiction it is!!

Just one of my favorites from the OST of the drama sang by the main character, Kim Soo Hyun (credits to the owner of the video)

Yes, even my blog sites have suffered! I would always say molds could have grown in my sites because I haven’t been updating them frequently. So unproductive of me thanks to my self control. Really, my failure in time management skills had shown! Sometimes I could also feel hubby’s irritation when he sees me in front of the laptop and just watching, haha!

I need to lose weight… I remembered the last time I gained this much was when I was pregnant with Zyc but since I was working then, I got my normal weight back. Now, after more than 3 yrs here in Germany I weigh the same weight minus the baby! :'(  I’m thinking of going on a diet (just thinking 😛 ) like what I did before. It was actually an unhealthy way and I don’t know if I could still do it. What I did before was I lessened my food intake especially at night. My problem now is I easily get hungry (normally I already get hungry 2-3hrs after a full meal 😛 ). I also bought a skip rope but I haven’t really been regularly doing it. My self discipline is a total fail. Oh my… I really have to get my weight back!

Just because one renovating expert says yes, it’s imperative that you get a second or even third opinion from a number of experts in the field. By knowing all the facts from a range of sources, you will be able to make an informed decision about certain aspects of your bathroom.

Colours. There are lots of them

Have some ideas of the colours that you want to include in your design. It’s ok to mix things up a little to make your bathroom something different and unique.

Get Inspiration

Gathering ideas for your perfect bathroom can be a bit of a challenge – especially if you want to cram as many ideas as possible into your space. Set up a Pinterest account and subscribe to your favourite renovation magazines to start collating ideas. Have your dream plan, as well as a number of backups as there will be times when your dream is not always feasible in your current space.

Less is more

Remember your bathroom doesn’t have to be cluttered with too many designs and features; some of the simplest bathrooms are often the best.

Ventilation is key

Nothing could be worse than having to spend every weekend scrubbing your new bathroom for increasing mould buildup. Planning for correct ventilation will help reduce excess mould in the future.

Plan ahead

Make a timeline and think about how long your bathroom will be out of action, do you have somewhere else to stay or at the very least, a friends shower to use?

Pace yourself

Just because the contestants on renovation shows work all day and all night doesn’t mean that you have to. Take the time to enjoy your renovation experience, plan breaks and rest times. A rushed job will not always be a perfect job.

Work to your budget

Often ideas may crop up along the way, as creative and fantastic as they may be try to ensure they still fit within your budget. If they don’t, brainstorm creative ways to approach the same idea with cheaper materials and execution.

Finishing touches

Remember to think about the little finishing touches that will add character and style to your bathroom. They may not be expensive features and gadgets, but small trinkets and displays can increase the aesthetic of your room.

Your renovation will be a great way to truly help make your house a home. Make sure you enjoy the experience, plan for what you want and work hard. The finished product will be something you will always be able to admire with a strong sense of satisfaction and accomplishment knowing it is something you created.
